    Default Indian army helmet non metal M1 style helmet

    Helmet origin unknown - eBay (item 200455517158 end time Apr-04-10 14:53:23 PDT)

    heres a seldom seen Indian Army non metal M1 style helmet that just sold on ebay, it looks simililiar to the types of helmets used by the Iraqi army.

    it's made of some type of balistic high impact thick material, maybe some type of kevlar / fiberglass?

    looks like it's a little higher quality than the typical Iraqi M80 helmet

    That is one unusual lid

    like you say ,very similiar to Korean issued -Iraqi M80's,the liner headband,and webbing is different though.

    Very interesting piece,and thanks for sharing this one,I did'nt even know the Indian army used these...Good info

    I just found out the first helmet is not Indian, it's actually an INDONESIAN M1 clone

    "Developed in 1998 reportedly for East Timor insurgency. The nylon or whatever is about 8mm thick."

    Here is a brochure from Polyglass Fibres, one of the Indian firms that makes these helmets, plus an actual example. As others have noted very similar M1 clones are made in Indonesia, Pakistan and also Bangladesh.
